Hannah Millirons Greek Civilization September 14, 2016 Iliad Book 19 Thetis goes to give Achilles his armor that she had made for him and sees him crying over  Patroclus and holding his body. Once he calms down, Achilles is happy with the armor.  However, he gets distracted again because he starts to worry that Patroclus's body is going start  rotting and disintegrating. Thetis tells him not to worry about that. She puts some ambrosia and  nectar into Patroclus’s nose to stop the body from decomposing.  Meanwhile, Achilles goes to Agamemnon and yells at him and formally announces that he is  taking back his anger towards him. Agamemnon accepts Achilles's apology. He says it was crazy for him to steal Achilles's girl and that what he did to him wasn’t meant to be taken personally.  Agamemnon tells him how Zeus has also suffered because of the goddess of Delusion. Then he  promises Achilles that he’ll give him the gifts that he promised him earlier. Achilles pretty much  says whatever, bring the gifts or don't bring them, it doesn’t matter because he just wants to  fight. Odysseus says he needs to calm down. He says they need to eat breakfast before they kill  all of the Trojans. Then Odysseus tells Agamemnon to give him the gift, promise that he didn’t  actually sleep with Briseis, Achilles’s girlfriend, and promise to not be so unfair in the future.  Agamemnon agrees to do this and tells some of the guys to go get the gifts while the others start  a feast. Achilles doesn’t agree with this at all and asks how they can think of having a feast when their friends are dead and refuses to eat anything. Once again, Odysseus tells him not to be a  fool, they have to eat so they can fight as good as possible. He leaves to go get the gift.  When it finally gets there, Agamemnon takes the oath. Then all of them sacrifice a boar and the  entire army feasts. The Myrmidons bring the gifts to Achilles in his tent. When Briseis sees  Patroclus’s body, she begins to cry. She says that Patroclus always treated her really well and  had made a promise to her that he’d convince Achilles to marry her. Achilles still refuses to eat  with them. A few chiefs stay with Achilles and listen while he mourns over the death of his best  friend, Patroclus. Zeus continues to watch all of this go down and sends Athena down to give  Achilles some ambrosia and nectar without him realizing it, so she does. Achilles and the rest of  the Greek army get ready for battle by arming themselves. Then he gets in his chariot and  addresses his horses. He yells at them for leaving Patroclus dead on the field and tells them that  they better do a good job next time or else. Xanthus, one of the horses, answers him because  Hera gives him the power to speak. Xanthos says that it wasn't any of the horses’ faults that  Patroclus ended up dying because Apollo was the one who killed him. He says that even if they  ran as fast as the wind, he would still be overpowered by a man and a god. Then the gods of  vengeance (Furies) make Xanthos go silent and Achilles rebukes him for prophesying his death  and drives them out to vanish.
